Little Window’s North Vietnamese Chicken Pho is Perfect for the SF Summer Gloom

Mark Twain’s oft-quoted appraisal of S.F’s cruel and spiteful summer climate has been ringing in my ears for about a month now; July hit and like clockwork the Great Grayness was pulled over the length and width of S.F like a wool blanket being drawn up to the chin of

More Soup for You: A Delicious and Cheap Recipe

Here in the Bay Area, there’s pretty much never a bad time to eat soup. It’s like that thing that Mark Twain said. You know, that quote that everyone from out of town references when describing our weather patterns. Anyway, even though it’s April, it feels like November out there,

Cubana Social: Fancy Place for Your Lack of Cash
